The Glens Falls Collaborative has announced the summer food festival Take a Bite will begin on Wednesday, July 7th, and will run every Wednesday through August 25th, from 5 to 7 pm in Downtown Glens Falls.
Take A Bite is family-friendly event in Downtown Glens Falls that showcases the area’s restaurants. Restaurants take to the sidewalks to offer affordably priced “small plate” menu items. There are currently close to 20 vendors registered to take part.
In addition to food, there will be live entertainment by local musicians, on Ridge and Glen Streets and at the Queensbury Hotel, and members of the Adirondack Theatre Festival will perform in the alleyway next to the Wood Theater. The Crandall Public Library will also hold a “Story Walk” for children and families.
The schedule of musicians performing on Ridge and Glen Streets includes:
7/7: Brian Fitzgerald (Ridge St.) and Tame Pacific (Glen St.)
